1980   Bryan Adams

Made up of brisk, pop-perky guitar fair, Bryan Adams' first album gained a considerate amount of airplay in Canada, but his notoriety abroad was still a couple of albums away. At 21, Adams' voice sounds a whole lot younger than his age, but the album itself holds up well, comprised of simple but buoyant pop songs. The better tracks stem from the brisk but amicable "Hiding from Love," the well-sung "Give Me Your Love," and from the staunch keyboard zing of "Remember." But the other tracks are in no way disappointing, with "Win Some, Lose Some," "Wastin' Time," and "Don't Ya Say It" all containing a pleasurable albeit rudimentary pop formula. In his late teens, Adams had worked with writer Jim Vallance, collaborating and writing songs for Prism (who Vallance was a member of at one time) and Bachman-Turner Overdrive before he was signed to A&M. This partnership had payed off for Adams, and his musicianship and writing skills became stronger with each release. Although his big break came with the release of 1983's Cuts Like a Knife, an album that gave him his first three Top 40 singles, Bryan Adams makes for an interesting and entertaining debut, especially from a retrospective standpoint. His tapered guitar punch may still have been in the making, but it's obvious by the cuts on this album that he was destined to be a successful radio rocker.

 Total Time: 00:31:09 


1981  You Want It, You Got It

With its crystal-clear production, courtesy of Bob Clearmountain, You Want It, You Got It is state-of-the-art rock & roll of the post-Bruce Springsteen era: the guitars rev up, the bass drum is deeper than a well, the vocals are nasal and punky. The songs don't have the craft or commitment of Brian Adams' peers/competitors -- Springsteen, Tom Petty, John Mellencamp -- but you may not know it for the first few spins, just because the sound is so hot and infectious, and by then it may not matter. Actually, this is a much more enjoyable record in many respects than the rock & roll assembly line products Adams constructed once he hit the arenas. As it was, with this one, he was on his way. All he did later was take this approach and make it slicker.

Tracklist:

01. Lonely Nights - 03:47
02. One Good Reason - 04:23

09. Last Chance - 03:19
10. No one Makes it Right - 03:16

 Total Time: 00:38:52


1983   Cuts Like A Knife

Side one of Bryan Adams' third album, 1983's Cuts Like a Knife, is simply perfect. "The Only One," "This Time," and the title track are mid-paced melodic rockers with drop-dead choruses and hooks; they set the mold for most of Adams' finest and biggest hits. Though it rocks a little harder, "Take Me Back" is just as radio-friendly thanks to its use of female backup singers, and the fantastic "Straight Through the Heart" is Adams' first of many great ballads. Side two opens with a few misfires, but recovers soon enough thanks to the gutsy guitar of "Don't Leave Me Lonely" and the rather saccharine (but still good) ballad "The Best Was Yet to Come." Adams would finally achieve chart-topping perfection on his next release, Reckless, but Cuts Like a Knife comes pretty close.

Tracklist:

01. The only one - 03:16
02. Take me back - 04:41
03. This time - 03:20
04. Straight from the heart - 03:31
05. Cuts like a knife - 05:19
06. I'm ready - 03:58
07. What's it gonna be - 03:40
08. Don't leave me lonely - 02:58
09. Let him know - 03:11
10. The best was yet to come - 03:04

Total Time: 00:37:03



1984  ♪ Reckless

Bryan Adams capitalized on the momentum of Cuts Like a Knife with 1984's Reckless, a virtually flawless collection of melodic hard rock which would dominate radio for years to come. "Run to You" was a brilliant lead-off single which remains one of Adams' best songs ever, but its success still pales in comparison to follow-up smashes such as "Summer of '69," "It's only Love," (a duet with Tina Turner), and the ballad to end all ballads, "Heaven." Although some songs haven't aged very well (especially the overtly cheesy "Kids Wanna Rock"), these weak links are easily eclipsed by further highlights such as the cool rock of "One Night Love Affair" and the irrepressible pop chorus of "Somebody." Sales figures may point to 1991's Waking Up the Neighbors as the peak of Bryan Adams career, but the songs from Reckless will most certainly prove to be his lasting legacy.

Tracklist:

01. One Night Love Affair - 04:34
02. She's Only Happy When She's Dancin' - 03:13
03. Run to You - 03:53
04. Heaven - 04:03
05. Somebody - 04:43
06. Summer of '69 - 03:36
07. Kids Wanna Rock - 02:35
08. It's Only Love - 03:14
09. Long Gone - 03:58
10. Ain't Gonna Cry - 04:06

Total Time: 00:38:01


1987   Into The Fire

By the time he returned to the studio after almost two years of touring behind the remarkable success of 1984's Reckless, Bryan Adams' once fruitful collaboration with producer Jim Vallance had obviously staled. Most of the duo's songs for 1987's Into the Fire were lifeless and dull, and the album yielded only one successful single in "Heat of the Night." The arena rock of "Hearts on Fire" injects it with at least a little spark, but things quickly get ugly with the depressing title track and the truly awful "Only the Strong Survive." Not surprisingly, the album was Adams' last with Vallance, and his new partnership with producer John "Mutt" Lange (Def Leppard, AC/DC) would lead to his greatest success yet.

Tracklist:

01. Heat Of The Night - 05:07
02. Into The Fire - 04:41
03. Victim Of Love - 04:07
04. Another Day - 03:41
05. Native Son - 06:04
06. Only The Strong Survive - 03:45
07. Rebel - 04:02
08. Remembrance Day - 05:59
09. Hearts On Fire - 03:30
10. Home Again - 04:19 

Total Time: 00:45:18


1991  ♪ Waking Up 
The Neighbours 

Although not as good as Reckless, Bryan Adams' 1991 album, Waking up the Neighbours, signaled his commercial apex. Bridging the time gap between '80s arena rock and '90s angst-ridden grunge, the album also ushered in an era in which Adams became more known for his sweeping power ballads than his straight-ahead rock tunes. This album, filled with nearly 75 minutes of showstopping arena rockers and mid-tempo ballads, churned out no less than five hit singles, the most notable being the Robin Hood Prince of Thieves theme "(Everything I Do) I Do It for You." That ballad spent seven weeks atop the U.S. pop charts, becoming the longest-reigning American chart-topper since Prince's "When Doves Cry" seven years earlier. The song also became a phenomenon in Europe, becoming Adams' biggest hit ever. Other singles which followed included the joyous rocker "Can't Stop This Thing We Started," which became a number two hit, the mid-tempo ballads "Do I Have to Say the Words" and "Thought I'd Died and Gone to Heaven," and the fun, straight-ahead rocker "There Will Never Be Another Tonight." Waking up the Neighbours was co-produced by Robert Jon "Mutt" Lange, and as a result, many of these songs sound as though they could have easily been Def Leppard recordings, especially "All I Want Is You," which sounds like "Pour Some Sugar on Me" part two. Nonetheless, Waking up the Neighbours is a fun album and perfect for those who expect nothing more than an old-fashioned good time from their rock & roll.
Review by Jose F. Promis, Allmusic.com

Waking up the Neighbours' will, with no sweat, reestablish Bryan Adams as the radio's hoarse purveyor of energy and fun. A scrupulously careful yet adamantly alive piece of work, this collaboration between the Canadian singer-guitarist and the Midas-touch songwriter-producer Robert John "Mutt" Lange alternates half-tamed sonic raunch like "Is Your Mama Gonna Miss Ya?" and "Hey Honey – I'm Packin' You In!" with eloquent mall ballads such as "(Everything I Do) I Do It for You," Adams's current planet-wide phenomenon, and the even moodier "Do I Have to Say the Words?" For further balance there is fairly soulful midtempo rock ("Depend on Me") and an oddly toned state-of-the-world finale called "Don't Drop That Bomb on Me."

Like most capable pop craftsmen hellbent on seizing the airwaves, Adams and Lange walk a fine line between familiarity and derivativeness, between the blazingly immediate and the outright stale. So some tunes on Waking Up the Neighbours have turned out too broad for anyone's taste. "House Arrest" doesn't convey much of the atmosphere of "justa havin' a ball," and the hectoring sing-along "There Will Never Be Another Tonight" collapses into silliness in no time flat. More often, however, all Adams and Lange's high-impact verses and choruses and bridges and subbridges work like charms. The arrangements are only faintly dressed up with well-chosen bits of keyboard and percussion, and Bob Clearmountain's mix emphasizes Adams's vocals and Keith Scott's memorable guitar hooks – not, as per current market fashion, the rhythm section.

Bryan Adams became a superstar on the basis of Reckless, from 1984, an album released just as Bruce Springsteen's Born in the U.S.A. was beginning to exert its enormous influence over how guitar-defined popsters should think, sound and wear their denim. Three years later, with his dull Into the Fire, Adams let his always believable passion for melody and crunch lead him into attempts at the sort of topical, introspective songwriting that Springsteen and John Cougar Mellencamp sometimes can pull off. But between 1987 and right now, the Traveling Wilburys restored humor and the Black Crowes embraced vulgarity. However you may feel about this turn of events in the evolution of nonmetal, bestselling guitar pop, one thing seems certain: It's coaxed Bryan Adams back toward his natural calling.

1993  ♪ So Far So Good 

Throughout the 1980s and early '90s, few contemporary rock artists were able to come up with as many lighthearted, guilty pleasures as Bryan Adams. This is especially evident through So Far So Good, which neglects all album fillers and compiles many of his most noteworthy songs, from such rockers as "Summer of '69," "Run to You," and "Cuts Like a Knife" to the equally popular power ballads "Heaven" and "(Everything I Do) I Do It for You." Also included is the all-new "Please Forgive Me," one of his best power ballads yet. It's not quite a perfect compilation, however; in particular, his Top 20 hits "She's Only Happy When She's Dancin" and "Thought I'd Died and Gone to Heaven" are overlooked. These are only minor flaws, though. There is no better introduction to Bryan Adams to date than So Far So Good.

1996  ♪ 18 til I Die 

After experiencing enormous success in the early '90s with a handful of soundtrack contributions, Bryan Adams returned in 1996 with 18 til I Die, his first full-length album in five years. Since 1991's "(Everything I Do) I Do It for You," Adams' biggest hits have been big, sweeping power ballads; evidently constrained by that middle-of-the-road persona, 18 til I Die attempts to return to the rockin' good-time vibes of his earlier records. The sound is grunged up a little, and he appears on the album cover in a bizarrely glitzy mod suit -- all meant to telegraph the message that even as Adams approaches 40, he remains a hip teen at heart. Of course, the music doesn't prove that to be true. He turns up the guitars for "The Only Thing That Looks Good on Me Is You," "Black Pearl," and "(I Wanna Be) Your Underwear," but that sort of raunch prevents the album from being much fun -- he's simply trying too hard. On the effortless ballads, Adams remains a rock-solid adult contemporary craftsman, writing songs with embarrassingly catchy hooks and melodies. Unfortunately, the ballads don't sit comfortably alongside the rockers -- they sound like the work of two different artists, one trying to sing to baby boomers, the other desperately trying to connect with teens. And while Adams might believe he'll stay a teenager until the end, he's most honest when singing songs to adults like himself.

Tracklist:

01. The Only Thing That Looks Good On Me Is You - 03:37

1997  ♪ MTV Unplugged
                CD & DVD 

Only two years after delivering his first live set, Bryan Adams returned with his second, MTV Unplugged. Of course, "unplugged" albums were in vogue in the '90s, but it has to be said that Adams arrived a little late in the game, several years after efforts by Eric Clapton and 10,000 Maniacs ruled the charts. Nevertheless, Adams' MTV Unplugged is a strong effort, featuring stripped-down versions of such staples as "Summer of '69," "Cuts Like a Knife," and "Heaven" that prove that he's a resourceful straight-ahead rocker with a knack for a hook. There's also a handful of surprises, like early cuts like "Fits Ya Good" and a few new songs, that keep the record interesting for dedicated fans, but the overall quality of the music makes the record one of his best efforts of the '90s.

1998  ♪ On A Day Like Today 

In retrospect, it's hard not to have seen it coming. When Bryan Adams' eighth regular studio album, On a Day Like Today, was released nine days before his 39th birthday, it spent only two weeks in the charts, becoming his least successful effort since his debut 18 years earlier. The fall seemed sudden, but it had its roots back in 1991, when Adams made a classic Faustian bargain: the massive success of Adams' film-soundtrack ballad "(Everything I Do) I Do It for You" set him on a path of more such songs that destroyed his legitimacy as a mainstream rock album artist. The erosion did not become fully apparent until the release of his seventh album, 18 'Til I Die, which stopped at gold but spent nearly a year in the U.S. charts. By the time of On a Day Like Today, however, Adams simply had no contemporary audience left, and this was not the record to rebuild his career. It was defiantly bereft of ballads, nothing to break on the AC chart, and even if his rock audience had been listening, there was nothing here to rank with his earlier signature hits. Adams constructed a series of pleasant, catchy pop/rock songs, their tunes sometimes so derivative that they made you want to play Spot the Riff. The lyrics usually touch on romance, especially romantic triangles, but the words contain so many cliches that they are nearly generic. Some of the commercial failure of On a Day Like Today was due to the Universal-Polygram merger, which left the album an orphan with no marketing push. But Adams needed to seriously rethink his career, if he expected to have one as a front-line artist past the age of 40.

  2002  ♪ SPIRIT
Stallion Of The Cimarron
(Music from the Original Motion Picture)

 Much like Disney's Tarzan, Dreamworks' animated epic Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron opts for a mostly pop-based soundtrack instead of an instrumental score. Tarzan used the music of Phil Collins as a backdrop to its stunning visuals; Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron features 15 new tracks from Bryan Adams to lend atmosphere to the tale of a runaway stallion's journey across the Old West. Adams' rousing, slightly sweet anthems are a good match to the film's look and theme, and they're also in keeping with the rest of his work. "Here I Am," "I Will Always Return," and "Don't Let Go" could fit in just as easily on his albums as on this collection. Likewise, "Get off My Back" sounds a lot like it could've been on 18 'Til I Die. There's some variety here as well, demonstrated by the vaguely Native American-influenced "Brothers Under the Sun" and understated ballads like "Here I Am" and "Nothing I've Ever Known." Not all of the diversity works well, however; the rebellious "You Can't Take Me" suffers from some shrill, tinny-sounding synths that make it difficult to listen to. The few instrumental excerpts at the end of the album round it out nicely, making Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron is a pleasant and successful soundtrack, especially for Bryan Adams' fans.

Bryan Adams released his ninth studio album, Room Service, in September 2004 in the U.K. and his native Canada, but it took seven months for the disc to receive American release. Frankly, the delay didn't really matter -- not only did Adams' star lose its luster in the U.S. sometime after his 1993 hits collection, So Far So Good, but Room Service sounds like it could have been recorded in 1993. It's so far removed from any modern music, in either the adult contemporary or rock realms, that it sounds as if Adams unearthed a collection of punchy, polished pop/rock tunes and power ballads that he cut 15 years ago and released it as his new album. This is marginally better than 1996's 18 'Til I Die, where Adams seemed desperate to sound and (more accurately) look hip, but Room Service isn't as memorable as that effort because it offers up Bryan Adams by the numbers, so slick and safe that it evaporates after it finishes playing. It's not bad -- it never takes enough risks to be bad; it's merely pleasant and professional -- and surely Adams fans who have stuck with him this long will find it ingratiating, but it sure raises the question of why he even bothers to record new albums if he doesn't have anything new to say.

2005  ♪ Anthology 

Spanning 36 tracks over the course of two CDs, 2005's Anthology is by far the most comprehensive Bryan Adams compilation yet released. While this doesn't have every charting hit he's had -- minor singles like "Fits Ya Good" are missing in action -- it does have every noteworthy hit, from "Lonely Nights" in 1982 to "This Side of Paradise" in 2005. Since his first compilation, 1993's So Far So Good, was frustratingly incomplete, it's nice to have Anthology be so comprehensive, even if it's exhaustive to a fault. There will be many fans that just want the first disc, which roughly spans from 1982 to 1993: it's the one that has his biggest and best songs, while the second disc, covering 1993 to 2005, has songs that not only were bigger in Canada and Europe than the U.S., but tunes that leaned toward bland adult contemporary, lacking the anthemic rock of the hits from the first disc. That said, there is no better Bryan Adams compilation on the market and fans that don't like his later work can just listen to the first disc, which is about as good a distillation of his prime years as there could be.

2008  ♪ "11" Deluxe Edition 
         CD + Bonus DVD

Never one for subtlety, Bryan Adams once had a flair for hooks so grand and universal that they filled arenas and blanketed the airwaves. In 2008, some 11 studio albums into his career (according to Adams' own calculation, apparently taking soundtracks into consideration, because by a simple count of studio albums 11 seems to be his tenth full-length proper album), his fondness for obvious hooks had flattened into cliches, with all of 11 feeling like something he'd done before, some ten or 15 years previously. To a certain extent, Adams' refusal to acknowledge shifting fashions was admirable -- especially for somebody who has made a name for himself in the new millennium with his fashionable photography -- but 11 is such a relic of '90s mainstream rock that it almost feels as if it were cryogenically frozen in 1993 and unfrozen later. It's all cavernous drums, shimmering guitar textures cribbed from U2, rockers that don't rock, and ballads that are so stately they don't quite seem to end. This outdated sound would have been forgivable, even charming, if Adams retained his knack for big hooks that could suck you in despite your better instincts, but 11 is resolutely devoid of memorable melodies. It doesn't quite seem like Adams is incapable of writing hooks anymore but rather that he can't be bothered, that he'd rather be pursuing his photography and that he just completed this album because it was about time to get another record out there. He's enough of a pro to create an album that sounds for all the world like the kind of glistening, gleaming Bryan Adams album his fans have grown to love, but the stilted predictability of 11 offers a reason why he hasn't had a big American hit since the mid-'90s: he sounds like he's stuck in that time and has no desire to leave it.

2010  ♪ Bare Bones

Inspiration can sometimes take a while to strike. Take Bryan Adams, for instance. Some 13 years after he cut an MTV Unplugged album, Adams decided to once again strip down his songs to acoustic, to take them down to their Bare Bones, to coin a phrase that’s used for the title of this 2010 collection. Culled from performances from his 2010 North American tour, Bare Bones doesn’t skimp on the hits but it does dig deep into his catalog, possibly due to Adams soliciting song suggestions via Twitter, a move that also indicates how this intimate performance is geared toward fans who have stuck with him through the years. Certainly, they’re the audience who will appreciate the subtle rearrangements and surprise songs but the thing is, listeners how long ago stopped paying attention to Adams due to the over-calculation of his studio records or the spectacle of his live show will find this his most appealing set in years. Backed by just his acoustic guitar and sometimes a piano, Adams sounds lean, his voice wearing handsomely, his charm put to the forefront. This setting turns such slick also-rans as “Only Thing That Looks Good on Me Is You” into a fun little rocker and reveals the strong bones of such perennials as “Cuts Like a Knife” and “Summer of 69,” making his body of work seem consistent in a way no hits compilation has managed.
